How to Make Soggy and Soft Fun (French) Fries Crispy Again

Potato French fries or fun fries are nice when hot and crispy but they will turn soggy real fast when left at room temperature.
Sometimes, my kids would bring back home the fries that they are unable to finish at fast food restaurants and it would a waste to throw them away.
The easiest way to heat them up amd make them crispy again is by frying them without oil using non-stick pan. There are loads of oil inside the fries and heating them up this way would cause all these excess oil to flow out onto the pan. A good way to get rid of the oil if you want to cut the calories! LOL!
Please use low heat to ensure that they are heated throughly and not burned.

Wah, soggy fries can save one ah? Never knew that. All this time I won't bother 'tapauing' unfinished fries cos it'll be disgusting when it reaches the house.

Can bake too... Can't microwave, not nice when it has cooled.

Oh this method is way better than baking them again. Baking takes up too much electricity hence $$.

What also helped my french fries was putting them into the toaster oven. Once I took them out and let them cool for a min they became so crispy again.
